Fixstars releases SSDs with 10 TB and 13 TB capacities

The Japanese company Fixstars has surprised the SSD world with two new solid-state drives that come with capacities of 10 TB and 13 TB. The new Fixstars products carry the SSD-10000M and SSD-13000M product names and are designed for use in high-end servers and workstations.

The new SSDs feature the popular 2.5-inch form factor and use 15 nm MLC NAND flash memory. The drives use the latest SATA 3.0 standard and reach 580 MB/sec of sequential read speed as well as 520 MB/sec of sequential write speed. In addition to this the drives need just 3-6W of power and come with ECC error correction technology, wear leveling, temperature control and more. The SSDs can also record streaming audio and video as well as 4K content in real time with no trouble.

Unfortunately the new Fixstars SSDs are 15 mm thick and are unlikely to work in regular desktop PCs. The price is also a factor here – given the capacity the SSD-10000M and SSD-13000M models will cost thousands of dollars. For instance the Fixstars SSD-6000M model with 6 TB under the hood currently retails for USD 6700.
